[image]Autumn Dust Storm - NASA/JPL/Malin Space Science Systems
MGS MOC Release No. MOC2-405, 28 June 2003 Autumn on the martian northern plains means clouds and dust storms. As autumn got underway in early May 2003, large dust storms began to form on the northern plains and sweep their way eastward--and sometimes southward--bringing colder air down from the north polar cap, now shrouded in darkness and clouds. This early autumn view, assembled from Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) daily global images, shows an eastward-moving dust storm ...

[image]Rock Slide in Ophir - NASA/JPL/Malin Space Science Systems
7 May 2004 The dark streaks, just left of center, on the steep slope in this Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image were formed by a relatively recent rock slide. The streak closest to the center of the image resolves into a series of small depressions, indicating the path of a large, rolling boulder. The rock slide is inferred to have been recent (i.e., within the past several Mars years) because it is so much darker than its surroundings--there has not been sufficient time ...

[image]Martian Gullies - NASA/JPL/Malin Space Science Systems
14 July 2004 This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows gullies with banked and somewhat sinuous channels and inner channels cut into the wall of a south middle-latitude crater near 46.6S, 175.7W. Banked channels are among the key evidence suggesting that some martian gullies involved flowing fluids with all of the physical properties of liquid water. The image covers an area about 2.3 km (1.4 mi) wide, and is illuminated by sunlight from the left.

These depressions, and the pattern of lines, are similar to dry lake beds seen throughout the deserts of the southwestern United States. The light material may be salts or other minerals deposited as the lake evaporated, and the dark lines may be cracks created as the material dried out...

[image]Windblown Dunes and Ripples - NASA/JPL/Malin Space Science Systems
MGS MOC Release No. MOC2-411, 4 July 2003 July 4, 2003, is the 6th anniversary of the Mars Pathfinder landing. One of the elements carried to the red planet by Pathfinder was the Wind Sock Experiment. This project was designed to measure wind activity by taking pictures of three aluminum "wind socks." While the winds at the Mars Pathfinder site did not blow particularly strong during the course of that mission, dust storms seen from orbit and Earth-based telescopes attest to the fact that wind i...
